Globalism and the Death of the American Dream

On August 22, 2016, U.S. News & World Report published the sobering article, “Dream On: Growing inequality has made the American ‘rags to riches’ story more myth than reality.

H-1B Visa Program Called ‘Tremendous Threat to American Professionals’

Now I know why my son, an engineering graduate, struggled so long to find his first job!

In December 2014, I was a proud father. My 22-year-old son had endured four years of one of the most grueling majors in higher education – electrical engineering – and had just graduated with a respectable GPA from one of the top engineering colleges in the country – Virginia Tech.

Obama Plots Backdoor H-1B Increases

Callously insensitive to the displaced American workers at Disney, Southern California Edison and at many other large American corporations, such as Qualcomm and Microsoft, the Obama administration is working stealthily to create a large new guest worker program.

Number of Stay-at-Home Young Adults Continues Increasing

Large numbers of young adults are remaining at home after they complete their education. A recent study by the Goldman Sachs Group Inc. found that “The share of young people living with their parents has increased relative to pre-recession rates for all labor force status groups.

Just to Reiterate: There’s No Shortage of U.S. STEM Workers

Billionaire tech moguls such as Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg never tire of warning us that America faces a terrible shortage of qualified workers in the STEM fields (science, technology, engineering and math).

Shortage of STEM Workers: A Myth

Around the world, employer interests long ago determined that an inexpensive way to attract trusting young people into the STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) fields is to falsely claim that there is a “looming shortage” of scientists and engineers. Such a public relations approach is far less expensive to employers than raising salaries or improving working conditions.

Lamar Smith’s Rock and a Hard Place Bill Kills DV (Good News); Gives Visas to High Tech Workers (Bad News)

House Judiciary Chairman Lamar Smith’s proposed legislation to increase by 55,000 the numbers of visas given to foreign-born university students who graduate with degrees in science, technology, engineering and math presents a real conundrum to immigration reform patriots.
